What can I do with a degree in Spanish Education?
The Spanish Education major prepares you to become a highly qualified Spanish teacher and an expert in Spanish language and culture. Our Spanish Education graduates teach internationally, lead schools, supervise other teachers, and teach within K-12 public school systems.
An Immersion-Based Curriculum
You’ll put your cultural awareness and language to practice when you study abroad in locations such as Mexico, Spain, or Ecuador during your year abroad. You’ll build memories that will bring Spanish language and make Spanish-speaking cultures come alive for your future students. We model advanced immersive pedagogies to build you as a teacher who opens worlds through languages.
Carrying out our mission of “Educate for Service,” our Spanish program offers you the opportunity to learn while helping others. Each semester, our students teach Spanish to local children. You’ll work with native Spanish-speaking parents, volunteer your time to chat with students in Spanish, and create resources for the children’s program. You’ll also apply the educational philosophies you learn during your student teaching semester.
Our Spanish classes are active, immersive, challenging, and fun. Using games, multimedia, and hands-on learning, we immerse you in Spanish language and cultures. As you approach upper-level study, you will apply your language skills to service projects, advanced studies in literature and grammar, or specific topics, like medical Spanish. Spanish Education majors engage in service projects that change from semester to semester, like teaching English to native Spanish-speaking adults, visiting with elderly Spanish speakers, translating educational materials for Spanish-speaking families, and tutoring local community members in Spanish.
WANT TO KNOW MORE?
The Spanish minor stresses language proficiency and cultural understanding. You’ll thrive as a Spanish minor as you study a wide range of topics. As you add this minor to your field of study, you will build a resume that demonstrates increased perspectives and skills.
Modern Language Clubs and organizations
Learning another language is about being able to connect with people in another language, understand and appreciate different cultures, and learn more about how the world fits together. We provide our students ways to practice their skills and gain cultural awareness outside of a traditional classroom, through our on-campus clubs and organizations. From sit-down talks with native speakers to cultural events, we offer our students a variety of ways to chase their passions.
The German Klub at Etown College offers several regular events and outings. The Klub holds a bi-weekly Stammtisch (German Table) where German majors and others with an interest in the language enjoy lunch together and practice the language. The group also plans field trips and hosts film nights. Contact Frau Snyder for more information!
